jvl narasimha rao

I have completed fifty years of age today

But I haven’t celebrated my birthday

 I haven’t achieved much to highlight myself

Or feel proud of my self


I have just become an English teacher

People may consider me an educated creature

I lost my infancy innocence

And adolescent exuberance

But attained the signs of old age

Though not a sage, freed from unnecessary rage


My beard is graying

 Body is slowly weakening

 Blood pressure is a bit rising

 Hair is alarmingly falling

But today surprisingly I entered the field of acting

Though it is just a beginning of a beginning


I know I am a tiny particle in this vast universe

I encourage and console myself by writing some simple verse

Only my poetic friends give me some confidence

Out of my humble and simple life I derive some sense


I hope God let me live for two more decades long

And make me mentally very strong

I want to make my life a beautiful song

The memories  of right from my childhood do throng

    Dear J Serbia. thanks a lot for your comments and rating.

  • Cheeky Missy

    A very nice reflective poem in tribute to your half-century mark. We love to celebrate it not because you are some great achiever, but because we are thankful to have YOU! I do wish the Lord will grant you several more decades, and hope you at least had a pleasant day. Many Happy Returns of the dear big brother!
